    I live on Ramage.. A man came to my door at 4:30 January 16 with a brochure in his hand from my mortgage company. He knew my name. He wanted to enter to discuss my mortgage. I told him no. Called my mortgage company Wells Fargo and was told that they would not send anyone to my door unsolicited. Tried calling the police but was put on hold.
